From one end of Canada to the other reports come pouring in each day that passes. Every week end sees a whole list of drowning casualties recorded in the newspapers, more particularly in the Vicinity of the larger cities, i There is very little excuse for the average drowning. In the great ma jority of canes the ability to swim, or r least to keep afloat for a few min tjtes, makes all the difference between lift and death. . Parents should insift that their chil dren learn to swim. There is scarcely a home in the country, where in the sum mer time sufficient water is not avail able in which the children can learn to swim. City parents are in even better case with the big city baths open all the year round to children at stated periods. Swimming is one of the most healthy and delightful exercises imaginable. Very rarely indeed is a youngster so delicate or timid that he or she will not derive benefit from at least oc casional swimming exercise. Quite possibly the average man or wrman may never be In a situation where the ability to swim alone stands between them and immediate death, but this situation does arise often enough. Very often a dwen strokes wiil make all the difference between life and death, and the person who can con ouer the first dozen strokes has no ex cuse whatever for not being able to keep going for some time. Learn to swim. There is no better and healthier fun. Some day, more over, an art which was learned as a recreation may be quite literally a life saver.

J. Dodge. John W. Gordon of Barre, a candi date for nomination to Congress, has been invited by the Republican town committee of St. Johnsbury to parti cipate along with the other two Repub lican candidates for representative and the four Republican candidates forov ernor, in a joint debate to be held in St. Johnsbury some time prior to the holding of the primaries. The plan of the Republican committee of St. Johns bury is to engage two halls, one to be nmA hv the representative candilates and the other by the gubernatorial candidates, after whicn tne speakers will change halls and go through the debate again for the new audienre. Each candidate is to be allowed 20 minutes to state his views and will be given five minutes for rebuttal. Reference in a recent iss'te of 7he Times to the headstone to John Gould on the Gooley farm on BeckU-y hill has called forth the information from a descendant of one of the early set tlers of Barre thst there was a John Gould resident in Barre -hiring the early days of the town and that the headstone undoubtedly was erected in his memory. The John Gould to whom the stone was erected was the son of Capt. John Gould, and there were two girls in the family, Harriet anj Lurin da. The family lived for many jeari near the old Twingville schoolhouse (now called North Barre). The school house later was used as a depot for the Montpelier A Wells River railroad. Capt. John Gould came here to build the first sawmill for Joshua Turing on the property now owned by the Smith, Whiteomb 4 Cook. Co. This was the beginning of the Twing busi ness, writes the descendant of an early ettler in Barre. Later dpt. Gould huilt a prist mill and the eld Tving house, the house being a per'ect colo nial structure. Captain Gould died in a small house north of the mill which was later torn down and replaced by a new structure built for John Ba con, who took his place in the mill. Our informant continues: "This ws not the first house built in flair. The old Goldsbury house is much older and ia now atandinff and is known as the Josl Goldsbury place and now owned by Carrie Wheelock of Barre t ity. J bis w'as the first house to have jrlas win dows. The bride of Joel GohKoury came from Msachuetts on horse back. She brought under her arm the first pane of glsns usd there." The in scrintion in Question reads as follows: In memorr of Mr. John Gould, .Tun., son of Mr and Mrs. John Oould of Winrhefter. who died April 5. 17M, I a?ed 24 years. 11 months and It days.

There was gTeat excitement in the little community of Great Pond one night last week. The Ellsworth Ameri can's correspondent was awakened at midnight by a woman's screams. -Come to our house! There's a burglar!" He recognized the voice of that of a neigh bor, in whose household were only wom en. Without stopping to put on his shoes, or very much of anything el, he rushed to the neighbors' house. His embarrasnroent was relieved somewhat when he found that the. woman of the houe and several young ladies with her were as excited as be, and not much mora fully attired. A chorns of escited exclamations greeted him. "There's a burglar or a erary man in the pantry! He's smashing up the dihe.' A rattle of psns and rrah of china corroborated the story. With lamp ia one hand, club in the other, and hair on end, aa he mndidly admits, exir correspondent, prodded to boldness be fore so much terified femininity, ad tanced tm the pantry.

Juet how hard it is sometimes to cause the arrest of an offender is illus trated by a recent experience of a Flat- bush woman. She was sitting in an automobile in Broadway near Fifty- seventh street waiting for her husband I who had gone into a store to mane a i purchase, when indifferently -hej noticed two men come from an auto mobile supply store, each rolling a tire. She watched them until they entered a building about half a block distant. They had hardly gotten out of the line of her vision when the proprietor of the store appeared, in great state of excitement. He had been robbed, he loudly shouted, and the F!atbuh wo man heard him say that two expensive tires had been abstracted from hit stock. Then she remembered the tire- rollere. "I have just seen two tires being rolled from your store into that build ing," she told the victim, pointing toward where the men bad disappeared. The proprietor and the growing crowd started for the building. She got out of the car and went with them. On the way they picked up a policeman. After some questioning the elevator man recalled that men and tires had gone into an office on one of the upper floors. The policeman was appealed to go to the office but he refused. He had no warrant and no authority to enter the building, be said. Acting on the well-established prin ciple that what goes up must corns down, the store proprietor decided to keep watch at the street end of the elevators. By this time his informant was so interested in the chase that she decided to watch with him. F hus band joined her. After a wait of about a quarter of an hour a man, who she said looked like one of the pair she had seen rolling the tires, came down. This time he was carrying what ap peared to be one very large single tire. The watchers followed him out into the street and a policeman was called and asked to question the man. He did so. The fellow, with the utmost self possession, insisted that a mistake had been made. The woman, convinced that her first suspicion was correct, demanded the arrest of the man. The policeman expressed regrets, but he said he had not seen an offense com mitted. It was then she insisted that the bundle be opened. This the police man said he could not do. "Well, I can," declared the angry woman, and she did so. Before the surprised man could move to stop her she had enough paper wrapping torn off to disclose two tires. The dealer said they were tlje same kind and size as had been stolen from his place. Then an arrest was made. Xew York Times. Connecticut River Navigation. One result of the sweeping increase ia railway rates should be a stimulus to the development of inland water ways. Their neglect in favor of ex clusive use of rsilwsys is an extrava gance In every case in which navigation can be made to pay, and the number of such esses must be materially in creased by the raising of freight rates by from 20 to 40. per cent. Once developed, a waterway costs much less than a railway for upkeep, and it has, also the advantage of great flexibility in carrying capacity. A period of relative idleness mattera lit tle, and when the demand is great there is room for all the barges that can be got to the spot. An era of high freight rates, with the increase at its maximum in Xew England, will very greatly strengthen the case for Connecticut river naviga tion. If it has already been needed it will be needed even more when the new rates go into effect. If it waa al most a paying proposition before the increase was authorised, a jump of 40 per cent in freight charges should leave a considerable margin for profit and still mske possible a substantial sav ing fnr the Connecticut valley.
